Well, you can find them all, and a great deal more on the Midlands Meander - South Africa's first, largest and most popular art and crafts route.

The Meander extends over a distance of some 80 kms between Pietermaritzburg and Mooi River and was started in 1983 by several of the craftspeople who have long resided in the area (often as exceedingly contented refugees from city life) as a way to market their products, keep down their prices and allow visitors a glance at their craft.

From a very small beginning, the Meander has grown to well over a hundred stops on four routes. The symbol of the Meander is the Butler butterfly, found only in the d was then left as a marker for many years Karkloof region.

Contact the Midlands Meander Committee for an excellent, detailed brochure.
